How Do You Choose an Auto Accident Attorney?

If you or a family member was involved in a Michigan automobile accident, you likely sustained property damage in addition to any number of injuries.  It can be a difficult time both emotionally and financially for the entire family.  An experienced car accident attorney can review the specifics of your case, assist with negotiating a settlement with insurance companies and file a lawsuit on your behalf if it becomes necessary to do so.  But how do you choose a car collision lawyer?

2 Steps to Take Before You Hire a Michigan Car Accident Attorney           

  1. Research: Before retaining an automobile accident lawyer, it is important for you to conduct your research.  Confirm if the lawyer has received any professional complaints[1] and obtain as much information as you can to make an informed decision. Is their law practice limited to personal injury including automobile accidents?  Just as you would not select a brain surgeon that also works as a podiatrist for your health care needs, it is important to select a car accident attorney that focuses their practice and their attention on that specific area of the law.
  2. Meet the Lawyer:  An important quality of any automobile accident lawyer is the ability to communicate.   Be sure to meet the attorney in person to confirm that they listen to what you have to say and can explain the claim that will be presented on your behalf.  At the meeting, do not be afraid to ask any question that comes to mind as an experienced Michigan auto accident attorney will be ready to answer them all.
